Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Richard Gilliam
Gandhi is a worshipful tribute to one of the 20th century's greatest leaders with Ben Kingsley giving a superb performance in the title role. Produced and directed on a grand scale by Richard Attenborough, the film sacrifices the complexities of history for an inspirational focus on its subject. Critics frequently cite the film's dismissal of supporting character development among its weaknesses, with the strongest objections reserved for Candice Bergen's miscast performance as photojournalist Margaret Bourke-White. Nonetheless, the film transcends the typical biopic with vivid recreations of important incidents from Gandhi's life. More than 300,000 extras, most of them unpaid volunteers, are said to have taken part in the funeral sequence, which occupies only slightly more than two minutes of the film. As was widely predicted, the film swept the Oscars, winning eight, including Best Picture, Best Actor, and Best Director.

    Gandhi

    This epic movie needs to be seen more than once to grasp its many facets. It starts with the personal, racist humiliation of young lawyer Gandhi in South Africa when passes where still the order of the day. The whole series of Gandhi's struggles in Africa and India for civil rights, equality and freedom on all levels encompassed with his inner, political and philosophical developments gives a deeper understanding of the man and the period.
    What else but an epic could have achieve this larger than life task? Wether one agrees with the principles of non violence Gandhi demonstrated through the progression of his journey, one cannot but gain the utmost respect for the man through this movie.
    Ben Kingsley's acting in this deeply engrossing movie is just superb and extremely sensitive. You see the man's resolve grow from each confrontation with injustice and petty politicking.
    A must see!

    TREAT YOURSELF

    What more can you ask of a movie than great actors like Ben Kingsley?
    It boggles my mind how the producers can get so many people together for the mob and crowd scenes and keep them all under control. But that's movie making, I guess. There is modern technology also, I suppose. That fact makes me appreciate more the older classics when such technology was not available and the movies were still great like 'Gone With The Wind.'

    Catch this movie. It's educational, interesting and about a man who would not take 'no' for an answer and achieved wonders by setting a nation free through passive resistance , never raising a weapon.

    Entertaining and educatonal

    It is amazing that anyone cold tackle such a subject matter as Gandhi and not make it look like boring, by the numbers, story telling.

    Hats off to director, Richard Attenborough for tackling this and making it all come together.

    I'm sure there will be differences that many have about this movie, particularly around factual events or even chronology. As it is with bigger than life figures, these things are always disputed.

    But I don't think that Attenborough set out to make an "educational" film. However, Gandhi was indeed educational as well as highly entertaining.

    Ben Kingsley is perfect a Gandhi. Very fine work too from Candice Bergen, Edward Fox and John Gielgud.

    great except for factual inaccuracies

    let me start off by saying, yes, this is an excellent movie and deserves the praise. however, the many factual inaccuracies detract too much from the overall experience for me to give a complete endorsement. first off, gandhi was not punjabi, he was hawaiian. second, he was not a skinny little runt, as ben kingsley chooses to portray him. he was actually well over six feet tall and build like a young marlon brando. this has been well established by his biographer, winston phillips. third, he did not die in support of indian freedom. he is alive and quite well, residing in sunny fort lauderdale, florida. my grandparents are neighbors of his. if you can put these issues aside, however, you will enjoy what is otherwise a well acted and beautifully crafted period piece.

    One of the Greatest

    A classic beyond bounds about the greatest 20th century humanitarian and perhaps the greatest behind Christ. Ben Kingsley inhabits his character as if he his Gandhi and certainly a momentous achievement considering who he was playing. Attenborough was courageous in his portrayal and maybe the best directed film ever.

    brilliant!

    This is an impressive cinematic telling of the life of Gandhi - the trials and tribulations of possibly the world's most preeminent hunanitarian. A wonderful way to find out more about India's struggle for independence and how peace can be brought about through non-violence.

    Had Potential

    This movie had true potential, but unfortunately it is hugely biased towards Jinnah and Pakistan. Often, Jinnah is portrayed is demonic and anti-progressive--quite the contrary. Facts are clearly distorted.

    Ben Kingsley's Finest Hour - A Magnificent DVD Experience

    Richard Attenborough's 'Gandhi' is a masterfully told, boldly mounted epic motion picture depicting the life and times of India¿s purveyor of peace. Gandhi is a benevolent crusader against the violent destruction of his country at the hand of the colonials. The film opens with Gandhi¿s (Ben Kingsley) assassination and then regresses to explore the events that led up to that fateful day. Kingley rightfully took home the Oscar for his subtle but stunning transformation into the title role. The film features an all star cast that includes Candice Bergen, Edward Fox, John Gielgud and Trevor Howard. Columbia Tristar has given us a very beautiful print of this film. Colors are rich, bold and vibrant. Contrast levels are extremely natural. Although black levels are not always at their darkest, this is relatively forgivable, since most of the film takes place during the day. Shimmering, aliasing and edge enhancement are all present but in extremely minute amounts, leaving one with nothing to do but admire the visual presentation in all of its breathtaking cinematic glory. The soundtrack is 2.0 surround but well represented. Some of the audio has a tendency to appear thin or strident but, again, considering the source material, it is remarkably well represented. No extras - disappointing for a big time Oscar winner like this. Perhaps we'll eventually get a special edition.

    Keep coming back to it...

    I think the movie is exceptional. It has just the right pace and there is an authentic portrayal of all incidents. You feel along with the characters and are dragged into those times... A good educative film about India's struggle for freedom. I have seen it nth number of times and i enjoy it everytime...but then i am an Indian.

    Ghandi was a huge man

    This movie was a great sucess in every way-the portrayal of Gandhi by Kingsley, the direction, Amitsar massacre scene and the overall impact. The one of the few faults I would like to mention was the music. The music could have been much deeper. D.

    Not the True Picture

    The cast/crew, camera work and sets are unique however the historical facts & figures are quite biased in favor of Hindu India as against the Muslim Pakistan. Agreed that M K Gandhi was a true patriot and a great leader, however the movie's portrayal of Muhammad Ali Jinnah the founder of Pakistan is lowly and unrealistic. Some critics say that the expensive Indian settings of the movie had the blessings of the then Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi and that¿s why Richard Attenborough had no choice but to somewhat degrade the founding leaders of Pakistan that is considered to be India's arch rival since both countries gained independence from Great Britain in 1947.

    A must See MOVIE

    This movie provides a beautiful portrait of Mahatma Gandhi's philosophy of non-violence and glimses of Indian independence struggle. The first time I saw this i stick to my chair till completion of movie. This may not give the enire picture of indian Non-Violent Independence struggle or a biography of Mahatma Gandhi.I watched this movie more than a dozen times and still continue to do so.
